I have a SA 1911-A1 that originally was a standard full size loaded pistol. I sent it back to SA and had a Nolin barrel and bushing, slide to frame fit, front strap checkered, carry bevel, deburred interally, trigger job, night sights, mag well installed and frame beleveled, and accuritized. Piece is a real nail driver in the right hands - not necessarily mine.
A problem I have with it is getting the slide stop back in after field stripping it. The slide stop plunger is difficult to push back - I cannot do it with just pushing down on the slide stop. I have to push back on the plunger with something while trying at the same time to push down on the slide stop. That is a lot of things going on for someone with thick fingers who doesn't want to scratch the frame. Last night I put a slight scratch on it and felt sick about it and determined that I have to find a better way.
Any suggestions out there?

...In and up...at the same time. Put some tape there to shield it until you get used to it...Oh...and don't worry...now yours' matches ours'...:wink:

I took the front plunger and filed it down just a bit so I could press mine in after I scratched the frame trying to push it in with a tool. The spring is strong and the parts aren't fit real well, but then again, it ain't no custom.

Some folks do a little filing and smoothing to the slide stop where it contact the plunger and the hole in the frame. Can't describe it without a picture though. Makes the job much easier with no down side if done right.
